Many thanks to Alpha industries for providing the glow in the dark powder. Better pics this evening once the sun goes down https://www.facebook.com/glowinthedarkpowder?ref=hl

Was a long build, a lot of time goes into timber preperation, the endless belt sanding etc. What you get for free you pay for with time, however pallet and reclaimed timber has more character than new timber you find.

NYMAREK says:

hello
out of curiosity which sand grid did you use on the belt 220? and then 400 ? on the flat sander?
as I did some test on a plywood using the belt 120 and the resin was coming off easily however due to the fact I actually sand in the way and movement you did “similar” up and down .. it scratches slightly the surface wood and the top of the inlay glow in dark powder..and it ended a little bit dusty scratches

my point is to have a good way to sand without scratching the wood and espacially the surface of the inlay/resin/

which finishing you were using on the wood to actually remove all the sandish kind of white look to rejunate the wood and the inlay?

I use this resin Silmar 249 Clear Polyester Surfboard Resin
from uscomposite

I also made a box and switch on/off for the MOT with 12 gauge extension cable along with the aligator car jump tip

Mehmet Aydın says:

Videonun başlangıç noktası amatörce geldi bana lakin sonuç MUHTEŞEM tebrik ederim …. The starting point of the video sounds amateurish, but the result is great, congratulations.

ab osm says:

That looks so dope

Paul Cairns says:

Love the rustic commentary.

Flip Flop C says:

just watched that from beginning to end it went from a pile of crap to a big fucking WOW(swear words and capitals were necessary to emphasise my point). You are my new god of making stuff from stuff. Table is awesome and someone would pay a lot of money for that and the rest of your furniture in your house is amazing.

Crimson Moon says:

I love the sound of the music with the tools and I love this song and amazing job with the table.

The DodgeFather CTD says:

How do you get the burns ?

scott mclean says:

could I mix the glow in dark powder with screwfix’s no nonsense water repellent sealer? this way I’m getting a waterproof sealer and the fluorescent effect. plus screwfix’s is cheap. I’m off to bed now been a long tiring night shift but I’d appreciate your thoughts. thank you Mr. Bongo

marion nesbit says:

Trevor Cassidy says:

Hi Bongo I’m loving the table it’s excellent and very inspiring. I’m making a table myself and have done some lichtenberg figures on it. Got some water clear epoxy and glow powder but I’m finding the epoxy won’t dry enough to sand, always sticky to touch! what type epoxy are you using? Oh and are you using a welder to burn your lichtenberg figures?

Crimson Moon says:

I was wonder, if there was a way to make the wood keep its wet look when polishing or wetting it down because I really love the effect it has on the wood.

Kathie Lenhart says:

Incredible!!

wu-tang x says:

celtic shaman 365mhz says:

Good craft work and skill with imagination and creativity. I’ve done a lot of creative one offs down through the years and watching yourself and the likes keeps the fire burning within . Keep it up brother , people need to be inspired and fuck the begrudgers. Just subbed .

MrCarnutbill67 says:

Shit shop, shit tools and shit materials= outfucking standing finished product. If this video doesn’t inspire people to get out there and build something then nothing will. I’ve got twice the shop, twice the tools and twice the materials but haven’t made anything half as good as this. I’m inspired to get off my ass and make something cool. Thank you and subscribed.
